We have been accustomed to be told that the greatest thing in the religious world is Faith. That great word has been the key-note for centuries of the popular religion; and we have easily learned to look upon it as the greatest thing in the world. Well, we are wrong. If we have been told that, we may miss the mark. I have taken you, in the chapter which I have just read, to Christianity at its source; and there we have seen, “The greatest of these is love.” It is not an oversight. Paul was speaking of faith just a moment before. He says, “If I have all faith, so that I can remove mountains, and have not love, I am nothing. “So far from forgetting, he deliberately contrasts them, “Now abideth Faith, Hope, Love,” and without a moment’s hesitation, the decision falls, “The greatest of these is Love.”
The Greatest Thing in the World is a meditation wrote by Henry Drummond in 1874 that illuminates the importance of “Love Chapter” 1 Corinthians 13. Widely read and quoted during his lifetime, it has gone onto sell over 12 million copies and continues today to influence people to follow God’s two great commandments: to love God and to love each other.
Henry Drummond was born in Scotland in 1851, he was a man of varied talents. He was perhaps best known as a gifted evangelist who assisted Dwight L. Moody during his revival campaigns. He was also a lecturer in natural science. Although he never received a degree, he was an ordained minister and a professor of theology.
